Lab Onboarding


Pick up a key request form from the Facilities Room (Gilman).
For graduate students, an advisor's signature and a $20 deposit are required for each key.


Contact Marie-Josee (MJ) Carlsen and ask for BearBuy access on Dr. Graves' accounts.
For your request to go through, you will also need to update your email address in the UC Berkeley Directory.
All lab purchases are made through BearBuy.  Digikey is available in the BearBuy catalog; Mouser and Jameco are available in the BearBuy Directory as non-catalog purchases.


If necessary for your project, request cryogen safety training from Phil Simon.
